This isn’t easy to answer. ;/ Here goes.
It saddens me when I see someone cause themselves unnecessary grief. When things are simpler than they choose to see, and peace and happiness is something within their grasp, but they choose to fixate on things I feel the urge to reach in and set something right, however small, and help them. But I’ve come to terms with the sad reality that you can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped. Some lessons are only learned the hard way.
It saddens me when someone lets the perceptions of others define who they are and shape them. You could live a life free of others, glorious in its individuality, yet you choose to be subject to petty whim and insensate regard?
It saddens me when someone seeks out something while overlooking what’s right in front of them, all along. Don’t get me wrong, self-discovery is a good thing. But ignoring your blessings isn’t.
Hate saddens me. So does intolerance. The fading of friendship. But these are all tiny things lol. They pass us by, and in their passing they leave us a lesson. ^_^ The more the better for me I guess. Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
(What’s with my anon’s these days lol?)
Thank you Chris. I’ll bear your words in heart and mind. ^_^ It’s always a joy to find that you’ve brought even a ray of sunshine to someone, even if you weren’t aware of it… even if they’re a perfect stranger to you.
Am I all that lol? I personally think I have a ways to go, but I wish you the same, and more.
You write so beautifully,
the inside of your mind
must be a terrifying place.
